Support and advice for children and families

Children in care

We provide support for children who are in care and continue to provide additional support after care.  We provide further support such as the supported lodging scheme for older teenagers and young adults who have been in Local Authority care since their 16th birthday and want to explore options to move on from care.

Independent assessments for Children by Aberlour

Aberlour provide a range of independent community-based assessments for children aged 0-16 years of age.

Out of Hours social work

Incidents can occur at any time which may require social work involvement.  Out-with office hours, during weekends and public holidays, we provide emergency out of hours support.

Travelling people - education and support for children

A traveller child or young person is entitled to a school education - this is not affected by their family's mobility.  We can help provide education and support for your child.
